Guest Bloggers - Bubblegum BalloonsPublished on 31st January '19
The Proposers work with so many amazing suppliers to help create our many romantic and creative proposals. One of our all time favourite brands is ‘Bubblegum Balloons’ who can create just about anything with balloons, from a romantic surprise balloon box to a two story installation that covers an entire house! We got chatting to the girls at Bubblegum to find a little bit more about the company we adore working with. So ladies, what’s the best part about your section of the events industry? It’s totally unique! Having delivered over 150 proposals, 400 bridesmaid requests, helped welcome over 1,000 new babies, we’ve been a part of some incredibly special occasions. It's difficult to find a product that surprises and delights all ages and works for all celebrations the way that Bubblegum Balloons does. Working along side the best of the best from each sector of the industry is incredible and means collectively we create some phenomenal moments. What inspired you to get into this career? Having explored the gifting market previously, we found a gap for impressive, deliverable and personalised gifts. We (Laura, Sally & Megan) wanted to send a friend a balloon to celebrate the birth of her first child and it was obvious there wasn't anyone out there making high-end balloons easily purchasable. 5 years later, Bubblegum Balloons is delivering over 120 balloons daily and out and about all over the world creating balloon magic! Who inspires you the most in this industry? Our heroes are, hands down, our incredible team who are as much a part of the Bubblegum brand as we are, and consistently go the extra mile to ensure every job is perfect. We are constantly in awe of them and all they achieve. And of course, we couldn't do it without the exceptionally talented suppliers we get to work alongside on a daily basis. We built our network with care and attention and we are reaping the benefits. We have amazing relationships and love working with our extended team. Seeing the friendly, kind and caring business owners reaping the rewards is a truly lovely feeling. If you could tell your 18 year old self something what would it be? You have no idea how important balloons are going to be in your life! Also, to stop and smell the roses… it’s not always easy to remember and time is always the hardest thing to take but marking the milestones and appreciating what you have achieved will make even the most impossible days feel worthwhile. Are you married/engaged/single/waiting for the other half to get a move on? Tell us about your engagement story/dream proposal! We have an office full of women so every time anything significant happens in any one of our lives, everyone goes through it together! From engagements, weddings and babies, it’s a non-stop journey and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re also lucky enough to get to see some of the most out of this world proposals (usually alongside The Proposers!) so maybe our expectations have been warped slightly…! What has been your most exciting/favourite memory from working with The Proposers? Anytime we get a brief through we know it’s going to be amazing. Even the request for a simple bunch of balloons ends up being stunning as they’ll be sat in the most gorgeous location for a seriously special moment. That being said, travelling to Barbados for one of the biggest international installations we’ve ever done was a memory for the books! If you have been inspired and would like our help to plan your very own proposal, then get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our website for more information www.theproposers.co.uk.
